Last week I was feeling pretty low and I had to miss out on
Sarah's Christmas countdown. But this week I have shaped up a bit
and I thought I would show you some of the things I have been making.
(If you follow me on Instagram you may already have seen some of these).
It was touch and go for a while where I would be celebrating Jul this year,
since my brother's family is going to Florida and visiting Disney World.
My parents were more worried about me feeling lonely (hanging out only
with them) than I was - even though I reassured them several times
that having a little kitten in the house was all the entertainment I needed.
But after some drama (mom kind of wanted to stay at home, dad suddenly
wanted to go to London) we are going to my aunt's, celebrating with my cousins.
I still feel a bit detached but they are sweet people and the food will be good.
Despite my partial detachment I have been feeling oddly Christmassy
in my crafting lately, and I brought nature into the house via moss,
fir branches, boxwood, ivy, hyacinths and larch cones.
I have also gone through ALOT of glitter and glue :)
Instead of a real Christmas tree this year I kept the left over fir
and boxwood from making the door wreath and simply put it in jars.
Together with all the hyacinths they fill the house with that lovely scent of Jul.
Has your home gotten a full Jul make-over yet?
And how will you guys be celebrating the holidays this year?
